Font rotation

Post by gmyers » Wed Nov 09, 2005 3:53 pm

In the course of testing our app with version of the PDF-Tools DLLs, I found an issue. Fonts that should be rotated 90 degrees clockwise are being output 90 degrees counter-clockwise instead. On landscape pages, we print a page number on the left edge of the page rotated 90 degrees, so that when portrait and landscape pages are stacked together, the page numbers are consistent. The test meta file also includes a date stamp, which is also rotated incorrectly.

Attached is a zip file containing a metafile and two PDFs. The first PDF was created using a Test_xMF.exe dated 21 Feb 2005 and the version dlls. The second pdf used the same metafile, same EXE, but the newer dlls.

If I need to repeat the test with a newer EXE, or if you have any other questions, let me know.

Very Strange and reproduced - will aim to get a fix out next week in build 93.

If posting files to this forum - you must archive the files to a ZIP, RAR or 7z file or they will not be uploaded - thank you.

Best regards
